It seems very weird that air injection to self is not a common suicide method – is there a reason for this? I do biomedicine, so I have access to a lot of needles but 0 medical knowlage. Chatted with Perplexity about this for a while, and it told me that even 5cc would be ok, if injected into the artery (tho, up to 5cc/kg, which would be way more umpleasant).
The caused stroke probably hurts, and there is a big risk of brain damage, if the attempt fails but these seem way smaller risks than those of the most common (non-gun) methods.

So, is there a reason why IV air isn't the most common method?

Extremely unreliable. Injecting into an artery is going to be difficult, if not impossible, for many people. You can't control where the embolism goes after it gets into an artery; it *can* travel to the heart, and then it *can* travel to the brain, but at each step that's a matter of chance.

Possible outcomes are stroke and heart attack; those are survivable for many people, you're leaving it up to luck whether it's fatal for you in that instance. If it's not fatal, you're left with a significant chance of brain damage, a heart condition or other long-lasting effects.

So overall, a very bad method. It's one of those things that might seem effective when you first hear of it, but once you start looking in to it and see what it would take to die, it falls apart quickly.
